The Benefits of Having a Family Dental Insurance Health Care Plan. Not everyone in the US receive dental benefits though their employer. People that do not receive dental benefits can tend to put off their dental care for themselves and their families. This mostly due to cost issues. However even for families there are low cost dental insurance options that are available and will help make going to the dentist much more affordable for your whole family.

There are HMO insurance plans in most states that run around $30-$40 a month for a family and offer free to very low cost preventive care, such as X-rays, Check ups and cleanings. For just one person those services can up to a $150 or more. You can see how with a family of four paying $40.00 a month just save you over $500.00 in dental care cost.

Also people that have dental insurance tend to see the dentist regularly for their preventive care services. By doing so it helps to prevent larger dental issues from start there by also controlling the cost for dental services.

Food Stuck Between Teeth – Dr Dental
09/09/22

What to do if you have an food lodged between teeth. Some times while eating we can get food lodged between our teeth that just does not want to come out easily. If you are eating out at the time this can also be irritating to you and your gums.

However never use a sharp object to remove anything from between your teeth. If this technique doesn’t work, and you can end up cracking or chipping a tooth. Best advise, carry dental floss with you at all times. I do not suggest flossing at the table but you can do so in the restroom.

Dr Dental – Cavities
08/29/22

Dental care and understanding how you get cavities. Believe it or not you do not just wake up one day with a dental cavity. It does take some time for your tooth to decay. Cavity is a word no one really to hear at their dental appointment. A cavity is a hole that can grow bigger and deeper over time. This happens due to tooth decay.

However even before it gets to that point, tooth decay starts with plaque build up. Plaque is a sticky,substance that is made up of mostly germs which causes tooth decay. The bacteria in your mouth make acids and when plaque clings to your teeth, the acids can eat away at your tooth enamel. If you are not seeing a dentist regularly for your cleanings then the plaque is not being removed. The acids can continue to make their way through the tooth enamel, and the inside parts of your tooth can begin to decay causing a cavity.

Although preventive care at home like brushing twice a day and flossing daily is a good start to preventing plaque build up. However seeing a dentist is the only way to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Also only a dentist can detect small cavities and stop them from turning into large dental issues.

Dr Dental – Saving Teeth Through Root Canal Treatment.
08/27/22

Question: I have some very bad teeth and I though I would just have them pulled and get partials. But the dentist I went to see, said they can save my teeth by doing root canal treatments. The cost of having six root canal and crown work even with insurance is very costly. I feel like just pulling them and having partials would be a much more affordable. I told the dentist this and was told that it maybe cheaper but you should never pull teeth unless necessary. I not sure if he was just saying that to make more money

Reply: The dentist you went to is correct in the fact that whenever possible to save a tooth you should compared to pulling it out. Missing teeth even with partials will start to cause the remaining teeth to shift which can effect your bite. It also leave the remaining teeth more prone to dental care issues. Keeping your teeth would be a better option whenever possible.

If you can not afford to have all six done at once go over your options. Fix the ones need to be done right away and save up to fix the ones that can maybe wait a while. Ask your dentist about a possible in house payment option

Dr Dental – Choosing the Right Endodontic Specialist
08/25/22

Question: I have a dental HMO plan that I have for over seven years. I been really happy with my dental plan but it does not cover for Endodontic treatment done by a specialist. Although my family dentist does root canals he said that I will need to see a Endodontic specialist this time. How do I pick a good specialist? I do not know much about choosing a dentist.

Reply: here are some starting tips:

  • Ask your current family dentist if they can refer you to an Endodntic dentist.
  • Call your current dental insurance (if you have dental insurance) and see if they can refer you to an Endodontic Specialist, specailly if you have to choose a plan specialist in order to be covered by your insurance plan.
  • See if any of your Friends or Family members know of any Endodontic dentist that they could refer you to.
  • Research Endodontic dentist online. call them and ask them any questions you may have about them and the services they render.

Dr Dental – Dental Insurance Why Have it?
08/22/22

Many people do not receive dental benefits though their employer and therefore go uninsured. They do not buy dental insurance mostly due to cost perceptions, thinking dental insurance would be too costly to afford on their own. Yet depending on the dental plan that is not always the case. Due to cost factors people without dental insurance see the dentist less by deferring off needed dental care. However one can not deffer off dental care and have the problem fix it self.

When dental services are deferred for too long a possible simple cleaning can lead into a filling which can lead into a root canal and so on. In the end it means higher and higher dental care cost. There are many low cost dental insurance plans that offer free to very low cost preventive care. By maintaining your preventive dental care you can stop the progression of larger more costly dental care needs.
